$216M!!! I'm dreaming big on this one!

Lamborghini Aventador J Orlando, FL

That's a Lamborghini Jota, there was only one made and I doubt the guy plans to part with it anytime in the next 3+ decades, so good luck with that. lol I would argue your chances are worse than a snowball in hell of ever seeing or buying that thing.

        Not sure what you are talking about? The government takes out their taxes before you get the money so there is no issue of them coming to take any of these items if you don't pay your taxes, they have already been paid. You would only lose the house if you don't pay your property taxes and if you can't do that with $100+ million, then that is your own <snip> fault. Quite frankly it is your own <snip> fault if you don't pay any of your taxes regardless. 

        This post has been automatically changed by the Lottery Post computer system to remove inappropriate content and/or spam.

        That is not entirely true, the government only takes out 25% and your state takes out it's percentage from your winnings.  You  then must pay the additional taxes on April 15th the following year.  Don't forget we now have a tax base of 39.6% for the top tier.  So you will need to put aside extra monies to take care of this obligation.

            It is strongly advised to sign the back of your lotto ticket after you purchase it to protect yourself from loss or theft.

            If you don’t sign your ticket someone else can claim your lotto winnings. 

            If you have lost a lotto ticket is it advised to contact the lotto you were playing and be able to provide them with information such as where and what time you bought  the ticket from and what your chosen numbers were (and often useful if you know what else you bought at the same time). Smiley

            So, if you are planning to claim in a trust or LLC/LFP, should you still sign the check before the trust or LLC/LFP are created? Wouldn't the signature have to have the trust/LLC/LFP name have to be on the signature? I've always wondered about this. After making copies, I'd place the ticket in either a bank lockbox or fireproof safe until I spoke with an attorney regarding the signature. And no one touches the actual ticket until I know the answer.

              The aerodynamic flaming stripes probably add to its speed and economy as well.  Thumbs Up

              Looks like it would also be great for mowing lawns . Cheers

                No blades on that one, but dangit that sounds like a great idea! I bet you could get an acre mowed in no time at all, and have a blast doing it!

                  You may also have to pay the 3.8% medicare tax. Not sure of the exact rules on this.

                  The winner would be responsible for this tax which would be used to fund Obamacare. This tax applies to both earned and unearned income.

                    always sign your ticket: your Name

                      Hi Jill, I can't believe you know this house in Orlando!! Yes, it is way above what I deserve but we're talking $216M!!!! I'm glad to hear it is on or near a golf course because that is what I want.

                      Price: $9.6M, 6bd, 13ba and 14,447 sq ft. For your interior viewing pleasure:

                      Orlando staircase Orlando kitchen

                      Orlando family room Orlando TV room

                      Orlando M.bedroom Orlando back terrace

                      $216 million is truly a fictitious number. In reality, if you were fortunate enough to win and opted for the cash option,  your net payout after factoring 39.6% Fed, 10.8% State and 3.8% Obamacare tax would be roughly $67 million. This net number is after factoring in a deduction of 14.3 million paid to NJ on your Federal return.

                      If you did splurge, spending 10% of your net payout on your dream home shouldn't harm your lifestyle going forward.
